I. Background of the study Presenting a case of Patient H.F., 51 year-old female admitted on the 24th of September , 2012 at 7:30 PM with baseline vital signs of T- 37.1 C, PR-92bpm, RR-23 bpm, and a BP of 160/90mmHg. The patient was admitted to the Mandaluyong City Medical Center, and was given a final diagnosis of Chronic Kidney Disease 2: to Diabetes Mellitus II related to Hypertension, Anemia 2 to Nephropathy Diabetes mellitus (DM) is a set of related diseases in which the body cannot regulate the amount of sugar (specifically, glucose) in the blood. The blood delivers glucose to provide the body with energy to perform all of a person's daily activities.

l is regulated by several hormones, primarily insulin. Insulin is produced by the pancreas, a small organ between the stomach and liver. The pancreas

diabetes either do not produce enough insulin (type 1 diabetes) or cannot use insulin properly (type 2 diabetes), or both (which occurs with several for cannot move efficiently into cells, so blood glucose levels remain high. This not only starves all the cells that need the glucose for fuel, but also harms certain organs and tissues exposed to the high glucose levels.

Type 2 diabetes (T2D): Although the pancreas still secretes insulin, the body of someone with type 2 diabetes is partially or completely unable to use this insulin. This is sometimes referred to as insulin resistance. The pancreas tries to overcome this resistance by secreting more and more insulin. People with insulin resistance develop type 2 diabetes when they fail to secrete enough insulin to cope with their higher demands. At least 90% of adult individuals with diabetes have type 2 diabetes. Type 2 diabetes is typically diagnosed in adulthood, usually after age 45 years. It used to be called adult-onset diabetes mellitus, or non-insulindependent diabetes mellitus. These names are no longer used because type 2 diabetes does occur in younger people, and some people with type 2 diabetes require insulin therapy. Type 2 diabetes is usually controlled with diet, weight loss, exercise, and oral medications. However, more than half of all people with type 2 diabetes require insulin to control their blood sugar levels at some point in the course of their illness.

A. RATIONALE FOR CHOOSING THE CASE 1. To know the anatomy and physiology of the pancreas and the associated organs. 2. To know the pathophysiology of Diabetes Mellitus Type 2, its signs and symptoms and its further complications.

3. To know the appropriate nursing intervention in accordance with its scientific rationales. 4. To know the appropriate medical management in the treatment of the disease.

H. Laboratory and Diagnostic Study


A. Anatomy of Pancreas The pancreas is an elongated, tapered organ located across the ba ck of theabdomen, behind the stomach. The right side of the organ (called the head) is the widest part of the organ and lies in the curve of the duodenum (the first section of the small Intestine). The tapered left side extends slightly upward (called the body of the pancreas) and ends near the spleen (called the tail).The pancreas are made up of two types of tissue:

Exocrine tissue the exocrine tissue secretes digestive enzymes. These enzymes are secreted into network of ducts that join the main pancreatic duct, which runs the length of the pancreas. Endocrine tissue the endocrine tissue, which consists of the islets of Langerhans, secretes hormones into the bloodstream.

Functions of the pancreas:

pancreas help break down carbohydrates, fats, proteins, and acids in the duodenum. These enzymes travel down the pancreatic duct into the bile duct in an inactive form. When they enter the duodenum, they are activated. The exocrine tissue also secretes bicarbonate to neutralize stomach acid in the the endocrine tissue in the pancreas are insulin and glucagon (which regulate the level of glucose in the blood), and somatostatin (which prevents the release of the other two hormones.

Anatomy of kidney The kidneys play key roles in body function, not only by filtering the blood and getting rid of waste products, but also by balancing levels of electrolytes in the body, controlling blood pressure, and stimulating the production of red blood cells.

The kidneys are located in the abdomen toward the back, normally one of each side of the spine. They get their blood supply through the renal arteries directly from the aorta and send blood back to the heart via the renal veins to the vena cava. (The term renal" is derived from the Latin name for kidney.)The kidneys have the ability to monitor the amount of body fluid, the concentrations of electrolytes like sodium and potassium, and the acid-base balance of the body. They filter waste products of body metabolism, like urea from protein metabolism and uric acid from DNA breakdown. Two waste products in the blood can be measured: blood urea nitrogen (BUN) and creatinine (Cr).Kidneys are also the source of erythropoietin in the body, a hormone that stimulates the bone marrow to make red blood cells. Special cells in the kidney monitor the oxygen concentration in blood. If oxygen levels fall, erythropoietin levels rise and the body starts to manufacture more red blood cells.

Diabetes Mellitus Diabetes Mellitus type 2 is the most common form of Diabetes. Formerly known as adult onset diabetes, it usually affects people aged over 40 and progresses gradually. In this type the pancreas has not ceased to produce insulin, but the quantity is insufficient, or the hormone is not stimulating the glucose uptake in muscles and tissues required for energy. The result is a build-up of glucose in blood and urine. Although the cause of this malfunctioning is unclear, non-insulin dependent diabetes mellitus tends to run in families. Other risk factors, such as increasing age, obesity, and a sedentary lifestyle, probably contribute to its increased incidence in developed countries. Non-insulin dependent diabetes mellitus can often be controlled initially by diet alone, or in combination with tablets that reduce the amount of blood glucose. There are two main types of blood glucose-reducing drugs: sulphonylureas work mainly by stimulating the pancreass islet cells (known as the islets of Langerhans) to produce more insulin and iguanids increase the effectiveness of insulin on cells. Eventually, however, patients may need insulin injections.

A. Drug Study GENERIC NAME BRANDNAME CLASSIFICATION : : : Amlodipine Norvasc Cardiovascular agent ; Calcium channel

blocker; antihypertensive agent. DOSAGE : 10 mg 1 tab//OD DRUG ACTION : These medications block the transport of calcium into the smooth muscle cells lining the coronary arteries and other arteries of the body. Since calcium is important in muscle contraction, blocking calcium transport relaxes artery muscles and dilates coronary arteries and other arteries of the body. INDICATION : Chest pain or heart pain (angina) occurs because of insufficient oxygen delivered to the heart muscles. Insufficient oxygen may be a result of coronary artery blockage or spasm, or because of physical exertion which increases heart oxygen demand in a patient with coronary artery narrowing. Amlodipine is used for the treatment and prevention of angina resulting from coronary spasm as well as from exertion. Amlodipine is also used in the treatment of high blood pressure.

ADVERSE REACTION: The two most common side effects are headache and edema (swelling) of the lower extremities. Less common side effects include dizziness, flushing, fatigue, nausea, and palpitations peak levels of amlodipine are achieved 6 more frequently when additional anti hypertensives or diuretics are added. -related

NaHCO3 bakinSoda, Bell-Ans, Citrocarbonate, Neut, Soda Mint CLASSIFICATION : antiulcer agents, alkalinizing agent DOSAGE : 1 tab//TID DRUG ACTION : Sodium Bicarbonate acts as an alkalinizing agent by releasing bicarbonate ions. Following oral administration of this medication, it releases bicarbonate which is capable of neutralizing gastric acid. INDICATION : > Management of metabolic acidosis >Used to alkalinize urine and promote excretion of certain drugs in over dosage situations. >Used as an antacid CONTRAINDICATION : Metabolic or respiratory alkalosis Hypocalcemia, Excessive chloride loss. It is not recommended as an antidote following ingestion of strong mineral acids. Patients on sodium restricted diet. Renal failure, Severe abdominal pain of unknown cause especially if associated with fever, Edema, Flatulence, Gastric distention, Metabolic alkalosis, Hypernatremia, Hypocalcemia, Hypokalemia, Sodium and water retention, Irritation at IV site, Tetany



NURSING RESPONSIBILITY: Assess the clients fluid balance throughout the therapy. Symptoms of fluid overload should be reported such as hypertension, edema, difficulty breathing or dyspnea, rales or crackles and frothy sputum. Signs of acidosis should be assessed such as disorientation, headache, weakness, dyspnea and hyperventilation. Assess for alkalosis by monitoring the client for confusion, irritability, paresthesia, tetany and altered breathing pattern. Hypernatremia clinical manifestations should be assessed and monitored which includes: edema, weight gain, hypertension, tachycardia, fever, flushed skin and mental irritability.

Hypokalemia should also be assessed by monitoring signs and symptoms such as: weakness, fatigue, U wave on ECG, arrhythmias, polyuria and polydipsia.

Monitor the clients serum calcium, sodium, potassium, bicarbonate concentrations, serum osmolarity, acid-base balance and renal function before and throughout the therapy. Tablets must be taken with a full glass of water.

A. Summary This study is about 51 year old women, who was admitted at the Mandaluyong City Medical Center and was diagnosed with Chronic Kidney Disease 2: to Diabetes Mellitus II related to Hypertension, Anemia 2 to Nephropathy, her suspicious and concern about her condition led her to seek for medical assistance together with her relatives. Her chief complaint generalized body weakness. The patient examined by her attending physician. Her diagnosis is worthy to study to find out how she end up on having that kind of condition with her permission and blessing, We as a student nurse of BSN level 4 (Old curriculum) Group 1A and 1B have decided to make a study regarding her condition. Patients having this kind of condition serve as a challenge not just in the health care system but also in the field of nursing. More than caring, caring is the essential component of nursing the best way to help patient is to render a service that is honesty and full of compassion.

This study also aims to widen the knowledge about the problem known in the pathophysiology of the study, the appropriate interventions and management for patient who are under this condition.

B. Conclusion

This data was studied and gathered by the BSN 4 (Old Curriculum) Group 1A and 1B to present a simple but yet concise information based on case study presentation. Nursing students were able to apply the proper nursing action to the patient during assessment. Students were able to identify causes of patient condition with the use of different taught of the group base on the knowledge gain. Students were able to formulate a scientific based pathophysiology that is parallel with the patient condition from the risk factors to the disease process manifesting signs and symptoms based on the physical assessment, medical procedure and Laboratory results. Actual and probable health problems to determine based from the highest to the least priority in order to prevent further complications caused by conditions. Nursing care plans to classified using SMART, specific, measurable, attainable, realistic, and time bounded. Nursing interventions was rendered to give the proper care that client needed. As the Student nurses tried their best in rendering the ideal and not just the ordinary care that can be seen in the hospital now days.

We, the nursing students determined the actions, classifications, indications, contraindications, side effects and adverse reaction and most importantly the appropriate nursing considerations. We future nurse need to know that in giving medications prioritizing the 10Rs is needed to avoid medication error. We need to assure that obligation to our patient is not just giving the medication and preparing it but to know the essential classification of the drugs and its effectiveness that soon will help to the patient for their fast recovery.
